Jamaican fined for altering immigration documents.

A woman named Crystal Shantal Hamilton, who is a Jamaican national, arrived in Antigua in February of last year.

However, she has now been fined for breaking the Immigration laws of Antigua and Barbuda.

Hamilton had applied for and received two extensions, the last of which expired on January 15th of this year.

She was informed after receiving the second extension that she would not be granted any further extensions and would have to leave the state.

Despite this, Hamilton failed to depart within the allotted time and instead presented herself to the Extension Unit at the Immigration Department last Friday.

Upon further examination of her passport, it was discovered that Hamilton had tampered with the original stamp issued by the Immigration Department, changing the expiry date from January to September 15th, 2023.

Immigration officers immediately arrested her on the spot and charged her with uttering a falsified permit and falsifying a permit, as well as remaining in the state illegally.

Hamilton pleaded guilty to all charges and was ordered to pay a fine of $10,000 within 14 days or serve 6 months in prison.

She was also fined $4,000 for remaining in the state illegally, to be paid within 14 days or serve 4 months in prison.

The default sentences are to run concurrently.

      Everybody needs a second chance. Stop being so harsh. A lot of people do even worse and are forgiven and legal here in Canada now. Maybe from even your country. Everybody looking for a better way out for their family. Sometimes you never know their situation.
